Radha, whose name means 'prosperity', was chief among the gopis (milkmaids) and favorite consort of Krishna. According to popular legends she was not officially married to Krishna but rather to a cowherd and here she is depicted playfully beckoning with her lotus bud to Venugopala, or Krishna as the flute playing cowherd, which would have formed a companion sculpture to this piece. The coy tilt of her head, the swing of her hips and the beckoning fingers of her right hand beautifully epitomize a young woman basking in the adoration of her lover.
